    Ok so i decided to play BG2 again for the first time in 4-5 years. Having fired it up, I remembered I didn`t like Jaheira`s BG2 portait. Now I seem to remember I managed to change her portrait back to her BG1 portrait the last time I played it. Something to do with the overide folder. Any help on how to do it would be appretiated.

    [​IMG] Put the two (or three) portraits in the override folder for the large and small versions and all them NJAHEIRM and NJAHEIRS, also NJAHEIRL if you have it.

    If you use Near Infinity you can export the old Jaheira Portraits into the Override straight away renaming them. Just click a couple of buttons and make sure the names match the ones above.

    Thanks for the help, guys. Got it working like a charm now. Made myself a cleric. Never played one before. Going for Jaheira, Korgan, Edwin, Yoshimo\Imoen, and...someone else. Unsure of who to stick in the last spot. Thinking of either Haer`Dalis or Mazzy.

    I like to leave the last spot open for NPC quests ( pick up Valygar, do the sphere - dump him, pick up Nalia, do the keep, dump her...)

    Yeah i think thats what I will be doing. At least for the quests where I absolutely have to bring a certain npc. Still. Going for Haer`Dalis for the most part now. Mostly because I haven`t really used him before.
